This directory contains zipped multiple alignments of the
human (hg17, May 2004) and mouse (mm5, May 2004) assemblies
to the dog (canFam1, Jul. 2004) assembly. The chr*.maf.gz
files each contain all the alignments to that particular
The hg17 and mm5 directories contained gzipped alignment files
for the pairwise (blastz) alignments used in the multiple alignment.

this directory, we recommend that you use ftp rather than
downloading the files via our website. To do so, ftp to
